VIDEOS: Meteor shower in Russia

Burning objects in the sky, broken windows on the ground

  • Photo

If for some insane reason this is one of the first sites you've gone to on the Internet this morning, this may be news to you.

I, for one, had never seen videos of a meteor shower flashing through the sky. Meteorites hit the earth. The explosions in the skies and the damage they caused on the ground ... wow.

This is from our friends in the Russian region of the Ural mountains. It happened early Friday.

I hope the Russians in the third video aren't swearing, though they certainly can't be blamed if they were.
